on his statement that he'd cut fema and return it to the states. the campaign has a clear media strategy on that front, and many others, of course. it's three weeks since mr. romney took a question from any reporter. let's get rate to our panel, as we await the president. richard wolffe is with me, the vp and executive editor of msnbc.com. and in washington, msnbc analyst eugene robinson, a pulitzer prize-winning columnist for "the washington post." richard, if i can start with you. with all due respect to romney and ryan, this is a big government moment, isn't it? this is a moment when, for all that they've said throughout this campaign, mr. ryan, mr. romney, about how they want to eviscera eviscerate government, this is actually a moment when we need government. >> it's a time when pieces of government come together, state, local, and federal. it's a moment when you move beyond party. they're not republicans and democrats in new jersey, they're just americans in need. and those messages, of course, resonate with americans in general. they also happen to be part of what the president an
that romney said that he doesn't think we should even have a fema at the federal level? well you don't have to worry about believing me or not believing me because you can watch it yourself. >> fema is go to run out of money. some people say do it on a case-by-case basis. some people are saying maybe we're learning a lesson that the states should take on the role. >> romney: absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it to the states, that's the right direction. if you can send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> cenk: that is mental! i can't believe he said that! so we shouldn't have fema at the federal level. what would be doing right now hoping chris christie gets it it right in new jersey? but the federal government wouldn't do anything? and then forget the state and local government. are you kidding me? privatize it? how insane is that? so if you're poor and you couldn't afford whatever rates that romney's friends were going to charge yo
? >> a storm relief event. >> if you have canned goods, bring them along. >> you need fema and need support. >> fema is about to run out of money. how do you deal with something like that. >> take something from the federal government and send it back to the states. >> you need fema and need support. >> if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> mitt romney can't show up on the east coast right now. he has to stay away. >> the president has been all over this. >> listen to your state and local officials. >> he deserves great credit. >> this storm is not yet over. >> the october surprise is here. >>> we begin tonight with the devastation from the massive storm called sandy. the death toll continues to rise. within the hour, it has gone from 43 deaths to 50. as a result of the storm. at least 23 of those deaths are in new york state. 18 here in new york city, alone. president obama has declared disasters in 11 states as well as washington, d.c. since sunday, the worst of the damage is in new jersey and new york. the president is scheduled to surv
. that's just a callousness. and also dovetails with romney's position on fema during the primaries where you're saying we don't need this, private companies can do it, states can do it. if you're out there saying -- giving the impression people handing out soup cans can solve a problem of this magnitude that's also a problem for you as well. >> i think that's right. underscores the point that a big storm actually requires some big government. you know, i think that's a very difficult position to be in for romney right now. >> and also the republican party, big government has been vilified in large part. talk about chris christie, first of all, christie has -- i don't think anybody here would want to shortchange the magnitude of the task at hand as far as new jersey and what they've seen in terms of damage and the victims in the state. but in terms of christie's almost zealous support for the the and his actions are you surprised by that? >> no. if you look at the poll numbers and see obama up 11 points in new jersey, it's math on christie's part. the government will be depended on for a
said that thing about his fema director, way to go, brownie, or whatever he said. that sticks in people's minds to this day. >> right. that would be a defining sound bite of his entire presidency. granted, it's unfair, but that's what sticks in people's minds. >> in your mind, has president obama made the right move, wrong move? what do you think? >> i think he has made the appropriate move here. he hasn't been too over. that's the key here. you can't be overtly political in how you respond to these kinds of disasters. he obviously will accrue some benefits because he's acting aas commanders in chief are supposed to act and help people on a broad basis. as the remarks of governor christie of new jersey proved, this is a -- he gets bipartisan support out of this disaster. that has to help the bottom line come election day. >> of course, he hasn't been -- president obama wanted to fit in one last campaign paerps in florida, then hurriedly flew back because he realized he couldn't make it back to washington because the storm was coming. so he hasn't acted perfectly along this path, right?
that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdiction. that's from his spokesman, ryan williams. is this a problem for him, susan? >> well, i think it becomes an issue for him because of what he said in that primary debate that john king moderated where he was asked specifically about fema. he said anything that the federal government does that can be transferred to the states are better yet to the private sector. that's the right direction. so it leaves open the question of exactly what role he sees for fema. fema has been a controversial agency such as their delivery of services after katrina. however it's pretty popular when it comes in and helps and picks up the costs in th
companies will be embedding a representative with fema in order to better coordinate the response. soledad? >> power outages a big problem here. dan lothian, thanks. john berman's got a look at some of the other stories making news today. >>> police in virginia are looking for the source of three homemade bombs. investigators want to know who set off explosives outside two stafford county homes early tuesday morning. the two incidents have been linked to a third explosion tuesday inside a house in fredricksburg. no injuries were reported. >>> a guilty plea in arizona from a mexican man accused in the 2010 murder of u.s. border patrol agent brian perry. manuel osorio air ranous could be facing life in prison. the 36-year-old man said he got into a gun battle while he and four other armed men were looking for drug traffickers to rob. >>> another california surfer attacked by a shark. the 25-year-old is fighting for his life after he was bitten in his chest and abdomen yesterday. a depp puttpy in eureka saying one of the wounds is a 14 inch gash. other surfers helped pull him out of the water
christie along with fema representatives and you know, right now, we can see pictures. we see the pictures of the iconic boardwalk. ripped up and the wood strewn across the streets. we see the downtowns of these communities inundated with sand and ocean water. and of course, we see those shots of the ferris wheel actually on these piers partially submerged in the water. it really is an appear okay apocalyptic scene on the jersey shore. obviously the cost in terms of damage in the billions and that's what fema and the president, of course, will be looking to lend a hand with tomorrow. >> jennifer: t.j., has everybody on the ground been accounted for? >> reporter: well, all i can tell you is that you know, those searches continue. many of the firefighters and the police, their own headquarters, many of them flooded. were fanned out yesterday and they were rescuing dozens of people who had to be either snatched from their rooftops or had to be pulled out of their homes. right now, they're still going house to hou
to the jersey shore, the president's made an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. this is the president meeting with several administration and cabinet persons there. we're told he addressed everyone around the table thanking them for the work and warning that the country's not out of the woods yet. joining us now nbc news political director chuck todd on the phone and ron allen live in point please sant beach, new jersey. todd, i'll start with you. we have chris christie with president obama and others say what else was supposed to happen here? i mean, these men may be from different sides of aisle but we know they're still without power and lost their homes and the other issue still facing the region. >> that's right. we are here in atlantic city. he is up in the chopper with governor christie. it was interesting. it was just governor christie. no other entourage greeting the president. just president and administrator fugate. they got on marine one which was brought up here and that's what they're doing now and just the three of them along with jack law the chief of staff on one heli
. >> romney's silence has been deafening. >> would you eliminate aid to fema if you were president? >> as hurricane sandy wreaks havoc across the northeast, first responders, nurses and neighbors have stepped up in tremendous acts of heroism. we'll take a look at these brave men and women tonight. but first we'll bring you the latest on the disaster across the northeast. >> good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. the aftermath of sandy is coming into focus and the destruction is heartbreaking. sandy's path devastated miles of shoreline and major communities. officials in nine states are reporting 44 deaths related to the storm. 23 of those here in the state of new york. it's estimated to cost between $30 and $50 billion. you only need to look at the images of the flooding to see why. a 14-foot storm surge in lower manhattan roadways were overflowing. tunnels filled with water. streets were submerge d. most of lower manhattan continues to be without power at this hour. the new york city subway system is still not running as workers deal with the flooded tunnels and th

the storm even hit so they were able to get here relatively quick. the national guard was here. fema was here. they were all working with the local authorities and were able to do it pretty smoothly. they've stopped search and rescue efforts for tonight and say they've gotten all of the elderly and handicapped people out of the area. they will do it if there are emergency situations. they're not entirely sure how many are left in the houses. we did speak with some who said they were going to stay regardless, they didn't feel like it was much of a threat. the high tide, though comes in at midnight tonight and they are concerned about getting another four feet of water. right now it's receding a lot since we've been here for the past few hours the entire day mostly. we can show you what it looks like here and this is certainly what it looks like. you can hear the sounds of the activity here and the generators and sirens every once in a while but wove a hard time conveying is what it smells like. there's a lot of gasoline, a lot of sewage. you don't want to imagine, rachel. what's in al
. it takes a whole mix of people whether it's the department of defense and even fema having roles to play in that. bob fenton, the assistant chief of fema, used to be the division chief in division 9. he is no stranger to this area, born and raised here, this is his home and so he does have a care and an interest in this community and beyond. and so with that it is hard to fill being his replacement at the regional level because not only to fill his shoes all the great work he did in this region, but also because when you see the size difference, it's a little hard to fit in there. but this this i want to introduce bob fenton, the response head for fema coming in from dc to help support this and moderate the panel. thank you. (applause). >> well, appreciate it. appreciate the opportunity to be back with friends and back in san francisco. and i appreciate the opportunity to be your lunch speaker. as i always say, lunch is one of may five most important meals of the day so thank you for that. let me introduce my panelists. here to my left, we have a great group here to talk about stor

other issue is romney's thoughts on fema. here he is yesterday. >> [ inaudible ]? >> romney: why -- >> why don't you answer any questions about fema. >> nothing to say. more bill coming up after the break. highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart. [♪ theme music ♪] >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation, on your radio, and on current tv this is the "bill press show." >> bill: my new political hero, chris christie. he is saying lots of nice things about president obama today, and president obama is going up to new jersey today to tour the storm-ravaged areas with governor chris christie. good morning, everybody, welcome to the "full court press" right here on current tv and on your local progressive talk radio station this wednesday morning. halloween, trick or treat. halloween has not been canceled or postponed, aren't you happy you will have all of thos
the gop primary debate, fema had come up. front and center and appearing to do fine and getting fine reviews, today, is he going to get rid of fema today he avoided that. here it is. >> governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> i'm sorry, let me make it clear. he said states should be responsible for disaster relief. >> to me, this is very tricky, he did not say there should not be a fema. he was asked about whether -- he suggested states and the private sector should generally be taking on more responsibility from the federal government. his campaign explicitly said on monday, he wouldn't abolish fema. fema takes care of a lot of disasters well below the level of hurricane sandy, including local floods, what have you. if fema could focus on big-ticket events like this one, it's possible it would be able to do its job better and state responsibility for lower level minor disasters that could be handled exclusively by states, that's a legitimate question. mitt romney wouldn't want to abolish fema, and he made that explicitly clear. >> a model interesting for health
. but that sword is double edged. and if fema stumbles badly, the blowback is sure to hurt the president who right now is on the jersey shore with chris christie and he's speaking. let's go to him now. jim, back to you. pat? >> we are waiting that news conference and we will bring that to you, as soon as it happens. it's a statement from the president after an afternoon of touring there in new jersey. >>> turning now to the weather in our area, which turned much nicer today. >> much nicer but chilly. a sweater for you. i've had the jacket on since i've been in and out today. but for the trick or treaters, at least it's going to be quiet. a lot of neighborhoods, some are, some aren't having the trick or treating. it's been overcast. we've had a little bit of blue skies from time to time. there are those gray low-hanging clouds. it's 53 degrees. so we were hard pressed to see the temperatures climb today. as far as the wind, it is out of the southwest right now. it's 7 miles per hour. a little bit of a breeze blowing. and more of a wind tomorrow and that wind will be coming out of the northwest. thr
states with very broad and significant impacts in a number of areas. president obama came down to fema this morning to the national resource coordination center along with several members of the cabinet, myself, secretaries, as well as other senior officials. his message to us was clear and consistent with his message over the past few days, get resources where they are needed as fast as possible without excuses or delays. and that's what we are committed to doing. everyone is leaning forward to support the states, communities and tribes in their response. we've engaged the entire emergency management apparatus of the entire country. that also includes the private sector, the faith based community and many many volunteers. so i'd like to thank all of these partners for their hard work over the last few days. but rest ashured, we are not resting. we are committed to working round the clock to get it done. yesterday the president declared major decasters for connecticut new york and new jersey which makes help available to those in those areas. the designated counties in those states can
damage he has ever seen. he also said that fema will play a very strong role in the cleanup and recovery and rebuilding of this region. 83 miles long. most of it affected by this storm in a very, very big way. of course, that is part of the genesis of the meeting with the president today. the plane is now landing, i am told the president had just moments ago stopped by the fema headquarters before coming up here. and now we are told that he has landed in atlantic city. tyler, we'll be watching this meeting. we'll tell you the latest as we have it but for now, back over to you in the studio. >> kayla, thanks very much. as you just saw, air force one touching down at the atlantic city regional airport there. he's going to get aboard one of those two helicopters, along with governor chris christie of new jersey, and first do a helicopter tour of some of the devastation in the atlantic city area and up and down the jersey shorelines. then he will get out and go on foot in to some of the areas. we'll, of course, follow that story for you and bring you the images as we get them in the building
hearing a lot about fema and mitt romney's position on fema. yesterday he dodged a lot of questions about it in ohio. >> reporter: yeah, and the obama campaign and other democrats are pointing to comments romney made way back in june of 2011 at a cnn republican presidential debate. take a listen. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are some people who say do it on a case-by-case basis and some people say the state should take on a bigger role. how do you deal with that? >> every time you take something from the federal government you need to send it back to the states. that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> reporter: john king at that debate back in 2011. yesterday mitt romney at a campaign event converted to a disaster relief event in ohio and was asked by reporters a number of times about what he would do with fema. take a listen to what he said. >> reporter: governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> reporter: what would you do with fema? >> you can see he didn't say much to those questi
. they're offering seven million meals over the next few days through fema, opening 50 shelters around the state and dispatching national guard troops to help people stranded in the storm. the governor's office asking all residents to be very patient, saying this will not be an easy storm to recover from and especially be patient with power still out, saying it could take days, even up to a week for that power to come back on. back to you. >> nbc's janel klein reporting in snowshoe, west virginia. our thanks to jannel and all of our correspondents for their reports. >>> we just got a new photograph of president obama this morning making an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. the president has made it clear that he wants no red tape when it comes to the government getting what they need to hands the aftermath of the storm, for the government to get to people their needs. the president also visited fema ahead of the storm's landfall with that same message. this reminder, he's leaving for new jersey and the meeting with the governor and mayor of atlantic city in the next hour. we'll br
the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i think there are going to be a lot of doubts and frustrations in terms of what exactly is going to happen here soon because it's going to take a while. obviously it's going to take a while. andrea? >> ron a
things are stable and who is going to pay for the damage repairs. that is dealing with fema on a presidentially declared disaster like this. the insurance company is the first to pay but they can be reimbursed by the federal government depending on what kind of damage you have and what you are eligible for. >> how long does it take? >> often times it takes weeks or a month or so to work with fema to figure out what is covered and what is not. >> if your house is flooded you have to wait until the insurance conductor comes out to assess before you can start to rebuild? >> usually within 72-hours you will get the visit from the fema inspector and insurance adjust tore. you figure out who is paying for what to make sure you are covered to see who your contact will be. >> do you recommend that they rebuild their house get the water out? where do they do? what do they do? >> water is the biggest problem. the longer water stays in your house the most chance you have to have mold and those kind of problems. get any wet materials out of the house and make sure mold is not setting in
been all over. fema has been fantastic. and responsive and working these types of situations. i have total respect for the job that fema is doing. i want to thank them very much as well as the army corps of engineers. as you all know, one of the major problems still is the water in the tunnels, the water has receded, so when you drive around, it looks like most of the water is gone, but the water filled the subway tunnels in many places, fill the brooklyn battery tunnel, and when the water fills the tunnels, that means con-edison has issues. much of con-ed's equipment was in the tunnels, so getting the water out of the tunnels probably the main -- one of the main orders of business right now. first a transportation update. as you know, the new york city buses are at full service today. thank you, mr. joe and your extraordinary team. there will be limited commuter rail service on metro north and on the long island railroad which will begin 2:00 p.m. today. okay? limited commuter rail service on metro north and limited new york city subway service subpoena meanted by a business bridge
, fema officials are there and other top officials. rick, what do you see there? rick: incredible devastation in this community and many more up and down the new jersey coastline this is one of hundreds of homes that was damaged, some of them destroyed. you can see in this guy's front door and see the pool table covered with several feet of ground. >>neil: i will come back do you, but, now, with the president. >> we are surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline, we want to show the president that personally, and i had an opportunity to see and discuss it at length, and, then, going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks and they can see the president and his concern, the concern all of us have. we have lots of challenges and our challenge is to get back to normalcy to get power restored and people have clean drinking water and wastewater treatment maps are working and hospitals are taken care of, and we get kids back to school. so, i discussed all those issues with the president and i am pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately

relief. even get rid much fema, and based on a debate last year. and he said that the federal role should be limited and romney was asked multiple times today to clarify the position on fema he didn't answer. afterward, romney's campaign insists he would eliminate fema, that may be true, but the plan to reduce the deficit would include cutting spending, and that would likely include fema. and paul ryan released his budget last year, which caused for a 35% cut to fema. >> we'll see if he talks about that tomorrow on the campaign trail. dana bash, appreciate it. we'll be right back. now you don't have to go to a bank to get the things you want from a bank, like no-fee atms, all over the world. free checkwriting and mobile deposits. now depositing a check is as easy as taking a picture. free online bill payments. a highly acclaimed credit card with 2% cash back into your fidelity account. open a fidelity cash management account today and discover another reason serious investors are choosing fidelity.
